A Hydrogen‐Bonded Hexagonal Buckybowl Framework


A hydrogen‐bonded two‐dimensionally networked buckybowl architecture is presented. Two types of hexagonal network (HexNet) structures (CPSM‐1 and CPSM‐2) have been achieved based on a sumanene derivative (CPSM) possessing 4,4′‐dicarboxy‐o‐terphenyl groups in the periphery. CPSM‐1 has a waved HexNet structure with an alternate alignment of upward and downward bowls. CPSM‐2 has a bilayered HexNet structure composed of hamburger‐shaped dimers of the bowls. This demonstrates that non‐planar π‐systems can be networked two‐dimensionally by an appropriate supramolecular synthon to achieve structurally well‐defined unique bumpy π‐sheets. Furthermore, we revealed that CPSM‐2 undergoes anisotropic shrinking along the c axis by 11 % under high pressure conditions (970 MPa). The shrinkage is brought about by offset sliding between bumpy π‐surfaces of the bilayered HexNet sheets.

Ein Sumanenderivat mit 4,4′‐Dicarboxy‐o‐terphenyl‐Einheiten bildet zweierlei wasserstoffverbrückte hexagonale Schichtarchitekturen mit gekrümmten und welligen Oberflächen. Eine davon reagierte mit anisotropem Schrumpfen auf die Anwendung von hohem Druck.

    Polymers with Helical Blocks

    Polymers, the basis of all plastics, usually do not have an ordered structure, in contrast to biopolymers such as proteins. A team of researchers has now developed a polymer that can be differentiated into folded (ordered) and unfolded (disordered) domains using UV irradiation. The team’s w ... more

    Methane from Carbon Dioxide

    Recycling carbon dioxide (CO2), especially through conversion to methane (CH4), is compelling while anthropogenic CO2 emissions are still rising. A useful process for this transformation is photothermal methanation, in which CO2 and hydrogen are catalytically converted into CH4 and water u ... more

    Liquid Fuels from Carbon Dioxide

    A new electrocatalyst called a-CuTi@Cu converts carbon dioxide (CO2 ) into liquid fuels. As reported by a team of Chinese researchers in the journal Angewandte Chemie, active copper centered on an amorphous copper/titanium alloy produces ethanol, acetone, and n-butanol with high efficiency. ... more
